Blog Series: Part 1. Get Ready For the Music at Boston GreenFest 2011: Jamie Kent & the Options

By Doug Ruffin
Boston Music Coalition

This is the first of a series of music spotlights leading up to Boston GreenFest 2011.

I am all about living green. I actually really do care about the environment. That said; I look forward every year to GreenFest. This year, Boston GreenFest 2011 at City Hall Plaza, August 18, 19 and 20 Rain or shine, will be huge! The music will show a more diverse accompaniment to what you may be used to hearing when it comes to from the green movement or Green events. They’ll even have a soul stage! Just try finding that in a green coffee house in the republic of Cambridge MA (Or, anywhere else for that matter). Theirs’ even a pumpin’ after party every night at the Hard Rock CafĂ©.

Live Saturday at Boston GreenFest 2011: Jamie Kent & The Options
Jamie Kent & The Options have a groove and arrangement style that fusions Jazz, Pop and Rock. That’s not easy to do. But trust me, it works and they do it well. Mark Roessler from the The Vally Advocate describes Jamie Kents’ album as,   “Neoteny reveals itself to be a swinging, witty romp of an album… with a hybrid jazz/rock sensibility reminiscent of Steely Dan.”
Jammie Kent & The Options are just one of the artists performing at GreenFest August 18. 19 and 20 at City Hall Plaza, Boston.

                            Catch a clip to hear the Jammie Kent & The Options sound.
